One man dead after boating accident at Stillhouse Hollow Lake

BELTON - A man has been pronounced dead after possibly drowning at Stillhouse Hollow Lake Sunday afternoon.

The victim has been identified as Dustin Daugherty from Holland, Texas. 

Texas Parks and Wildlife Game Wardens said they were checking for Water Safety Compliance when discovered an unrecognizable object in the water, which turned out to be a sinking boat. They noticed a white male sitting on the shoreline, and quickly determined that another occupant was still partially submerged in the water.

Authorities pulled the 38-year-old man to shore, where they proceeded to perform CPR on him. CPR was maintained for 40 minutes until paramedics arrived, and the man was transported to Seton Medical Center in Killeen, where he later died.

Texas Parks and Wildlife officials determined the men were fishing on Stillhouse Lake when inclement weather caused dangerous water conditions. The investigation into what caused the boat to capsize is still ongoing.
